Rain barrels are an excellent way to prevent soil erosion, conserve water and save money. Rain barrels are containers that connect to your downspouts to capture runoff from your roof. Did you know that a single 1-inch storm on a 1000 sq. ft. roof results in 600+ gallons of runoff? The water collected in a rain barrel can be used to water plants and gardens, reduce flooding in your yard and help protect the Chesapeake Bay.
